“We read to know we’re not alone.”

Hi peeps,

Yes, I am late with my April list of reads. But hey, we all know how life has a fantastic way of shifting our priorities and no matter how hard we try, we just cannot ignore them.

So, after taking care of as much of stuff as I could, here is my list of amazing write ups that I had to share in this edition of ‘reads that touched me’.

Hope you enjoy reading this short but impactful list. I made this while sipping a nice big glass of soothing butter milk. Its super-hot in Mumbai.

As writers, we often lose our way only to find our way back. And this heart-touching write up by Winston reminded me as to why I started to write in the first place. Thank you so much for this fantastic piece.

There couldn’t have been a better way to thank the kindest soul on medium — David Perlmutter as he highlights every piece that we write. Thank you so much for always encouraging us to write on. Your highlights keep us going.

And thank you to the amazing as always Vidya Sury, Collecting Smiles for writing this beautiful ode. Every word is what I would have expressed too to thank this wonderful human being — David. I just had to share this.

Sometimes we take our lives for granted until we read something that moves us from within. Dive into this soul moving poem by the heartwarming Neera Handa Dr.
